Chickenshed's Annual Celebrity Gala
ON Wednesday, October 16, 2013, the 25th Annual Chickenshed Gala will take place at London’s iconic Guildhall in front of a star studded audience. Guests will arrive at 6.45pm.
This year’s Guest of Honour will be internationally acclaimed English actor Jeremy Irons, with celebrity guests including Chickenshed supporter Christopher Biggins, who will be hosting fundraising games during the evening, Sinead Cusack and Dr Who’s assistant, Jenna Louise Coleman.
Two beautiful Blue Great Dane dogs will be on hand to advertise one of the fabulous auction prizes, and many of the greatest British boxers from the past 25 years will be attending the evening.
Following a sensational performance by a massive cast of over 150 members of Chickenshed, guests will enjoy a sumptuous three course meal followed by a phenomenal auction with many ‘money-can’t-buy’ lots. Edward Rising, in association with Sotheby’s, will once again lead this compelling and entertaining auction.
Rising believes that Chickenshed has been a life-line for his son who is a member of the Company. He has made it his mission to raise much needed funds for the theatre with his zany auctions!
The organiser of Chickenshed’s 25th Annual Gala is The Hon Natasha Rayne, assisted by her Gala Committee. Rayne has been at the forefront of this work during the previous twenty four years when her mother was Chickenshed’s President. Following last year’s Gala, she took over this role and is excited to be leading the Company into the future.
